Welcome Week Part 2

Just because classes start doesn't mean the fun is over yet. Thrive's welcome week events continue until our first Thrive Worship on August 25. Click the banner above for info on everything going on.

Worship Starts Augest 25

Thrive will start regular worship next Thursday at 8pm at Brad's House (972 W Douglas St). Practice starts at 6:30 if you want to just come and hang out with us before hand.

Small Groups

Thrive has small student lead bible studies that meet throughout the week all across campus. Those will be starting in the next few weeks. We will be posing more on that shortly...

Friday Night Live (Tonight)

Thrive will be leaving to go the the University sponsored “Friday Night Live” event tonight. We will leave from Brad’s house at 8pm (sharp) tonight. We would love for you to come with us.

Minute to Win It

Minute to Win It

Last night Thrive held a minute to win it competition. I was a lot of fun. Afterwards we decided to “watch” episodes IV, V, and VI of the Star Wars series (aka talk while they were playing quietly in the background). It was a lot of fun and kept us up until 5 in the morning. Thanks to everyone who came. Look out for more movie marathons to come.

Pool Party

Pool Party

The Driggers family was kind enough to loan us their pool for the afternoon, so we got to hang out, roast hot dogs, and play pool football (or something like that). It was a fun afternoon, and we had the opportunity to really get to know each other better. If you missed out consider coming cliff jumping with us next Tuesday (into water). We will be leaving from Brad’s house (972 W Douglas St.) at 5pm August 23.

Taco Tuesday

Taco Tuesday

Thrive had a fun time eating tacos outside this last Tuesday. We had festive hats, mariachi music, and most importantly free food. If you missed out on the free food, fear not; there will be a cook out at Brad’s house (972 W Douglas St.) this Saturday at 6pm.

Thrive's First Worship Practice

Move-In and the First Worship Practice

Thrive helped move people into Futral this morning and this afternoon had the first worship practice. We talked about what direction we wanted to take worship and practiced. The first Thrive worship will be on August 25th (and every Thursday after that). We are still working on finding a time for weekly worship practice, but we do a rehearsal right before Thrive worship every Thursday at 6:30 at Brad’s house. It’s a great opportunity to hang out and meet people even if you are not in the worship band.

Thrive Plays Volleyball


Thrive had a great time playing sand volleyball last night at Wilson Park. We had a lot of people show up for the first time. We are going to have an intramural team, so if you missed it you can still play sand volleyball with us. If you are interested you can sign up at Brad’s house for volleyball or flag football.

2 of our incoming freshman help move students into Gladson Ripley

Move In

Today we got to help move in several students across campus. Thanks to Everyone who showed up, especially our incoming freshman. We have a great group of students joining Thrive this year. We also got to spend a little time together playing “Klink”, a staple card game here. If you want to meet some of these great students, we will be leaving from Brad’s house (972 W Douglas St, Behind the bookstore) at 7pm tomorrow (Sunday) to play volleyball.
